Research Profile

I am an architect and heritage specialist by training with interests in rural landscape, industrial material culture, and ruins. My research focuses on the fragmentary and distributed cultures of the Highlands and Islands where I explore themes of identity, heritage, labour and seafaring through the cultures of co-making, and the artefacts created from that co-production. I am interested in the way that these material cultures are intersected through the digital and analogue forms and their relationship to the person. I am motivated to recover the tenuous connections with these artefacts and their labour to understand the people’s identity and makeup. The aim is to bring forth a co-productive understanding of the social and historical live of the people of the Highlands and Islands
